Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Harrisburg man is headed to trial for a fatal shooting in the city last year.

Daniel Negron-Rosario, 28, was ordered held for court Wednesday on charges of first-degree murder, false reports, tampering with evidence, and firearms violations.

Negron-Rosario is accused of shooting 32-year-old Rafael Cosme-Diaz in the 1400 block of Hunter Street. Police said the Sept. 19 killing was over a drug debt.

Negron-Rosario initially told police someone else committed the crime, but eventually admitted to killing Cosme-Diaz, according to police.

His formal arraignment was scheduled May 7.

Negron-Rosario is also awaiting trial in Cumberland County for shooting at a state trooper during a pursuit in Lower Allen Township last December.

Authorities said he stood up through the vehicle's sunroof and fired a rifle at the trooper while on Hartzdale Drive behind the Capital City Mall.

In that case, he was charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering.
